隠密作戦 (Oomitsu sakusen) translates as "covert operation." First mention by Clare.[7]


Claymore warriors are trained to pose in civilian roles—ranging from aristocrat to prostitute—while operating undetected by the public.[8]

Warriors must take suppressant to revert their silver eye color to "normal."


In chronological order:

  • Covert Operation link Operation Rabona: covert operation combined with Yoma suppression
  • Operation Rabona II link Operation Rabona II: covert operation combined with purge


During the 3-month timeskip, Clare uses her training to disguise herself as a man, while searching for Raki. Her voice change is only semi-successful. Not an official operation.[9]
